John wants the bike to go to someone who would appreciate it and not 'bob' or cafe it. At first the asking price was way to high, but with some emails and phone calls we worked out a fair price. This video shows the pick up and then some of the things that will need attention. Stay tuned for video's of this bike along side the SST.

After I built the bike I decided to see if anyone else would be interested in my work so I contacted folks withing the motorcycle industry and was overwhelmed with their response....."send photo's, send build history, send more information." Mitch Boehm at Moto Retro Illustrated was launching his first issue and invited me to send pictures and info. I'm grateful to be in the premier issue, published fall of 2009. Then the ball started rolling, MotorcycleNews.com of the UK did a story on us, followed by RealClassic.com, part 1 (900 Seca) and part 2 (900 Seca). Next Paul Crowe at TheKneeSlider.com (link), and finally BikeEXIF.com (link).
All of the attention lead to the realization that I needed to be better versed in many different areas. From computer skills, to e-marketing, to writing....time for this middle aged white guy to go back to school. Enjoying the process, the new friends from all around the world, and just plain riding.

No Paul Sr. didn't create it, however some dude, somewhere is lining this bike up for an extra point.
Enjoy your Sunday, eat some chips, followed by a Root Beer chaser....JF
